The groomsmen usually come in with the Groom and the bridesmaids come in right before you. But its your wedding, do what you want! (:

Typically bridesmaids walk down the aisle alone. Groomsmen are already at the altar with the bride. In the recessional they walk down with the groomsmen.

I don’t think all your music needs to flow. You might want your music for Bridesmaid or Best Man to walk to to flow into your song but I don’t think its 100% necessary.

I am having a beach wedding too. I am just walking to the same song as my Bridesmaid or Best Man, no separate song and am using I’m yours by Jason Mraz. My recessional song will be walking on sunshine.

Hope that helps!

You can do it either way.  Sometimes the Groomsmen are all up front with the groom from the beginning.  Sometimes they walk in with the Bridesmaid or Best Man.  Sometimes, they walk in alone.  It’s just a question of how you want to do it.

@HiltonBeachBride: I think the groom seats his own mom, I’m not sure?

I’ve never actually gone to a wedding where there were no ushers or the grooms parents were seated. That’s actually odd.

I didn’t get married on the sand but on a deck overlooking the beach. My husband (!) walked his mom down the aisle (dad walked behind him) and seated her. They walked to “Better Together” by Jack Johnson. Then hubby walked along the side of the deck (it was small) back to the entrance and entered with the priest and groomsmen (Better Together was still playing). Then our guitarist (acoustic guitar) changed to Canon in D and my girls walked in one by one followed by me and my parents. Our recessional was “Hey Soul Sister” by Train and our BM/GM walked out in pairs behind us followed by our parents. This was all so confusing when I was planning too!

While our guests waited for the ceremony to begin he played a lot Jack Johnson type stuff mixed with some classical songs.

I think its a regional thing. Every wedding I have been to in NY and in the midwest, the Bridesmaid or Best Man and Gm walked together. But I did go to a wedding in the south where the Groomsmen stood up front and the Bridesmaid or Best Man walked alone. Do whatever you want, there is no right or wrong answer ๐Ÿ™‚
